Here is a story that takes less than ten minutes to enjoy yet its message is timeless.
I’m sharing this read-aloud story with my deepest humility, knowing I am very new to this. Certainly I will get better at my recordings, but I read and reread through my old, lovingly worn edition of the book until this version felt acceptable.
Strong has been the pull from within me to share this story from my children’s youth. Its message is very important for us to understand, all year round but especially at this time of year.
Let us see others as if they are illuminated with the magical light of the Christmas candle, and we will see that we are all members of one family.
Let there be peace, and let it begin with me.
Warmest blessings of the season! Gina
Please note, I only share links for your ease in finding the books that I discuss, and I receive no recompense. Libraries rock, and I adore second-hand bookstores. I believe that wherever you find this book you will find, as I have, that it is a gem. Also, buying it new sends the proceeds to a caring non-profit agency. Click here to view this book at Amazon.com
I am delighted to share with you something I’ve been working on. I hope you’ll enjoy! It’s a lyrics video to a song that really touches my heart so I decided to pull together some powerful images about those who are less fortunate. This topic is deeply important to me: caring for others as we would care for our nearest and dearest. Let us offer our loving compassion to all.
How would we change if we looked out of a different set of glasses… different lenses…?
What if we chose to see the poor differently? What if that person was Jesus?
There is no world outside us. The world is, in fact, our collective projections of love and fear, hopes and conflicts. In taking responsibility for our own thoughts and feelings, we play our part in the healing of the world. ~Marianne Williamson, Illuminata
Our only work is to transform base metals, our thoughts and feelings, into gold. Our daily lives have no ultimate purpose other than this great alchemical transformation of being. Every moment offers an opportunity to surrender to the great work of maturing humanity by expanding our own consciousness and leading evolution onward. ~Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery
“The greatest teacher is our own soul’s connection with the Source. To access wisdom, distortions within our human nature must be removed: beliefs that do not serve, emotional attachments that cloud. We arrive in the present moment with no agenda of our own making. Here in the eternal present, a fountain begins to rise from within. It is the inner waters of wisdom, the essential wellspring of remembering.” ~Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery
My gratitude to the maker of this image with the spectacular photograph and inspiring quote. I wish I knew who to credit it to and will certainly add it as soon as I discover it. Namaste. Gina
